I will crack your ribs


and bury myself in your chest

and make a home there out of the beat

of your frantic heart banging against bone.

I will eat you up

One electrifying morsel at a time

and you’ll revel in it.

Hooked —

high on how I make you feel.

On how I make you tremble and leave you

helpless to do anything about it.
